The South Sudan First Vice President, Gen. Taban Gai Deng has appealed to the nationals who fled from violence to return home and participate in the peace process.

He made the call from Uganda where he met President Yoweri Museveni in a one day visit to strengthen ties between the two neighbors.

According to a statement released by State House, the visiting First Vice President said the 1 million Sudan Sudanese refugees in Uganda are vital for the peace to return home.

“There are one million refugees from South Sudan in Uganda who should return home for better life and support national dialogue,” Taban Deng said.

President Salva Kiir early this year announced national dialogue as move to end the brutal civil war that has entered the fourth year.

Thousands of South Sudanese are however increasingly pouring into Uganda every week as violence intensifies in their country.

Last month the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi and Ugandan Prime Minister, Ruhakana Rugunda jointly said the influx of refugees has reached critical point and drastic increase in relief aid was urgently required.

Meanwhile, President Museveni informed Taban that the camp where the latter met him at Kyityerera was one time a bush war site and only recently developed into agricultural development area.

The farm has been established for farming demonstration purposes with a view to sensitizing the local communities on steps they can take to address the challenges of poverty eradication at household level.

The 21-acre farm that is in its formative stages has a vegetable garden, pineapples, variety of fruit trees, poultry and mushroom slots, among others.

South Sudan equally has vast agricultural lands but the country only depend on oil export that accounts for 98 percent of the total revenue.
